In order to understand the project, it would be convenient to refer the analysis of the site, the criteria for the construction of the program and implementation / documentation, since being a technical-infrastructural program of urban-territorial incidence, a more complete vision of the project is required to be able to elaborate an observation with greater specificity.
Review the design of the columns in the access vehicular circulation, specifically the "eye", since this form makes their discharge more complex and, by analyzing the general design, this synthesis would give more power to the general system.
Being a design with a hi-tech character, an integral design of the building in this key is suggested, such as streetlights, white railings, armchairs, flooring, ceilings, replacing them with some chords to the general design.
If the central void is left as an open space, in the face of climatic conditions such as rain, it can generate complications to drain the incoming water. Due to its condition of being buried, it is suggested to evaluate the possibility of a roof with overhead lighting.
The bus parking on a slab that overlooks a void implies a structural effort and economic cost that it would be convenient to review the design so that it has a more solid structural support.
It is observed that, in an interior image, a roof appears with a brick-like cladding, reviewing it and analyzing alternatives for ceilings of greater proportions aligned to the general aesthetics of the building.
The structural ribs leading to the large central void are overextended, consider reducing their extension as far as the metal roof panels reach.
In the park, which is between the bus station at ground level and the vehicular traffic, it does not seem necessary to install sunshades, consider leaving a structure to stiffen porches but removing sunshades.
The design of inverted triangular luminaires, in the image of the interior oasis, takes a lot of prominence compared to the rest of the architectural design, looking for designs that better emphasize the spatial proposal.
The waiting space is currently limited, the two walls that contain it are not conducive, since they can spend a long time waiting, a larger scale proposal is suggested that includes values ??already seen in the rest of the building such as water and vegetation.
It is an underground space which allows a city to accommodate double the number it could with out expanding above the ground level.
Its an underground transit hub which was design on the most crowded CBD area in Addis Ababa which is called Megenagna, in order to minimize the disorganized settlement due to the rapid urbanization and also to balance the consumption and production level.
